“Yeah, you're right. LeBron sucks. You convinced me.”

“LeBron is a very talented player, but he is coddled and protected by the NBA. Lance let him know that he isn't feared and will be challenged. I would bet you that James respects Lance more than most other players and would love to have him on his side. And Lance would feel the same way about James. If defending James makes you feel superior, go for it. He doesn't need it.”
“Lance is quickly approaching the level of head scratching stupidity previously reserved only for Dennis Rodman. Dude has no idea how ridiculous he's looking. The antics of a 10 year old. I'd be embarrassed to have him on my team.”
“ROOMMATES! A small 2 Bedroom in the city. $2,500.00/ month. Fit 4 people in it. Each paying $3,800.00. Buys you 6 months. It can be done. You just better like your roommates because you'll sure be very close to them.”

“Miami Country Day. A great school. You're likely a child of a very, very wealthy person to attend. Not surprised they could afford Phil Collins to sing at their middle school (unless he's got a kid who attends). Good for them! I don't begrudge their good fortune. And very cool of Mr. Collins. But it would also be nice if celebrities would all perform at least 1 free concert per year to a less privileged school throughout the country. I hear that happen once every blue room. I'd love to see it be a more common occurrence.”

“If you watched the video, you would see his son was in the band. It was not a paying gig. The bit with the teacher was priceless.”
“Why? That's why we watch in the first place. To be awed by superhuman acts of athletic greatness. Then you talk to your friends, relive the memory and you're awed by it again. That's the fun part of sports. So "getting over it" really isn't a possibility if you're capable of appreciating sports at the highest of levels.”

“It was a great catch but hardly superhuman. Anybody awed that much by it needs to get a life.”
dtracy10 on May 24, 2014 at 14:26:26
“I didn't say you shouldn't be awed by it, or that you shouldn't enjoy it, but people were calling this "the catch". I think that takes away from the great catches in the past that are quite honestly...better.”

“Superhuman? Hardly. Greater than what you or I might be able to do in the same circumstances, but hardly superhuman!”
“The stretch, dive and catch has been made thousands of times before by great or even good players. But what you fail to take into account is that few (if any) players EVER to play the game could have the burst of thoroughbred speed to make up the ground it took to get even close to that ball. The ability to consume territory in pursuit of a ball is a rare ability not often taken into consideration by viewers. If you "follow" baseball, you might not be keenly aware of that. But if you've played outfield or WR/DB in football, that skill and talent is something greatly appreciated and awed.”

“who cares ??? you act like puige catch just cured cancer. this play happens every day.”
davol1 on May 24, 2014 at 11:54:27
“yep - it was the burst of speed that made it amazing. Man, wonder what kind of running back this guy would be?”
“Ok, convince yourself of that. Few human beings alive can run down that ball with such lightning speed then have the athleticism to stretch out at full speed and snag that ball inches from the ground. The best cricket player every to play the game would be 20 strides behind Puig. He would have arrived at the ball after it rolled to and bounced off the wall. You're comparing a thoroughbred to a pony.”
M Zahran Sallay on May 24, 2014 at 05:05:50
“you're obviously someone who never followed international cricket regularly. (if ever)
keep telling yourself that the best cricketer (we don't call em "cricket player") EVER to play the game is X number of strides behind this baseball player and that baseball player. whatever it takes to convince yourself of the superiority of your chosen sport.
i just put forward my opinions. if you didn't like it, well too bad.”

“Actually, I think we might need to stop calling her video a sex tape or porn video. It was pretty darn lame! Heck, Cinemax has raunchier stuff at night. Not that I watch porn all that much! Ahem ahem.”
“Come on Jordan, have you watched the Heat more than a dozen times in the past 4 years?
You've likely watched them at least 50 times if you take into account regular season and playoff games. Dude, it's the same team for the past 4 years!
As a diehard Heat fan, I've come to understand and accept (although begrudgingly at times) that the Heat do indeed have an "on/off switch". Some nights, they skate thru a game with minimal defensive effort and that's good enough. Some nights, they'll play a quarter of tough defense and that will be enough.
Then, some night, they decide they need to turn the switch ON! You've seen it. They can summon it when they really want to. When they really need it. And all of a sudden, they become rabid dogs who haven't been fed in a month. The pressure they exert on you is suffocating. Some nights, you'll see very strong defense from them for 45 minutes. Then the last 3 minutes of a game, it looks like there's 10 Heat players on the floor.
Forget the stats and over analysis. These guys have won 13 of 14 playoff series in 4 seasons and 2 Titles. That on/off switch has been there since day 1. I'm not saying it'll be enough this year. The Spurs are tough. But "D" ain't going to be the reason they lose if they do. It'll only be because the Spurs may simply be a better team.”
“I respect what you're saying and it has validity. I think the young Duke girl may feel the way you describe at age 40. She appears to be a bit more confident with her decision. But lets also acknowledge that this young woman could have also visited her 40 year old self and heard the message, "hey, think twice about doing this, it might not be the best idea". Both messages are equally okay in my eyes. Do I think porn is bad? Absolutely not. Some respected psychological studies have shown that some porn stars have better body image and self confidence/worth than the general public. Some women can thrive in the industry. But let's not be naïve about it. It's still an industry that is controversial in the eyes of many and very taboo. In todays age of social media, a 19 year old who may not be emotionally mature might be getting in over her head by doing a porn shoot. Perhaps her 40 year old self should err on the side of caution and suggested she enjoy her sex life in private. This story made me truly sad. She looks vulnerable. She has sad eyes. I guess I'm hypersensitive to young people who've had a rough go of it. I think the love she needed was that of someone who could for once be genuine with it, and not from some stranger.”
Adam the Picachu on May 24, 2014 at 03:23:12
“You are right to some point, but then show the correctness, saying Do I think porn is bad? In matter of fact there are some women that can thrive in sex industry, but most of them not. C'mon there are 18-19-20 years old girls, some of them barely entered sex life "playing" with 40-yeras old pervert with covered face. They are simply fresh meat for the sex industry.
Maybe there should be age rise for porn commitment? Maybe there should be a law, which allows you to withdraw your consent any time?”

“Karla & George - I think both of you make very good points.
This young woman obviously needed, if not guidance, then at least a confidant and definitely support.
Which also reminds me, that while we like to call these young men and women "adults" at age 18, anyone older than 30 knows that they're really not quite there yet.”
“No. He certainly has owned the paint and the FLOOR throughout his illustrious NBA career! Though many, many times he's on the floor unnecessarily. But that's his game. You're right, when D Wade turns 50, the dude will be walking like he's 80! But I'm sure he wouldn't trade the limp for the Championships and induction into the Hall of Fame. At least for me, it would be a worthwhile tradeoff. Heck, my entire body hurts now and I never got anything out of playing sports other than tons of fun.”
“D Wade! The savvy veteran still has that sweet touch. Still getting it done after so many years and a body that betrayed him way too soon. It's fun to see one of the best ever healthy and playing like the first ballot Hall of Famer he is.”
MinnesotaRoots on May 21, 2014 at 06:53:38
“Wade plays so hard and his play is the reason he'll be limping the rest of his life. Not because his body gave out on him. He pushed his body that hard. Have you seen another player spend that much time on the floor?!”
“Let's see if they pick another Anthony Bennett. They got cute and reached on an unknown project. If they had gone with the smart choice and drafted Victor Oladipo, you'd be looking at a strong contender in 2 years.”

“I think they were listing popular household names. I'm sure the 2 you listed are as good or better than most on the list, but they're not "brand names". Most of the names on their list are artists who have enormous fame.”
yuranidiot on May 22, 2014 at 22:26:19
“I guess that depends on who's "house" you're in
Half of those people, on the list, I have never heard of and the other half don't sing, they scream
And all the women Cassandra P. mentioned are very, well known artists, (just maybe not in your house).”
CASSIE60 on May 20, 2014 at 20:03:33
“Yes enormous fame and very little true sing talent. James Brown for example was a screamer/holler. Axl Rose Tina, Steven Tyler did a lot of screaming and hollering but I would not call them great singers.
Tim Storm has the Guiness Book of Records for 10 Octave range BUT he screams too and can not sing..
Talent like Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it seems.”
